How To Care for Your Granite

A regular maintenance regimen will help your natural stone become more resistant to scratching and wear.

Natural stone, especially polished stone, is sensitive to harsh chemicals. Do not use vinegar or any cleaners containing acids or strong alkaline agents.

We recommend using products that are designed for stone maintenance:

  • Stone Sealer once a year.
  • Stone Cleaner once a month.
  • Stone Polish once a week.

If you spill acidic juices or alcohol on the stone, you should blot dry immediately. Acid-based foods, such as citrus or tomatoes, can etch into the polish of more delicate stones, like marble and onyx.

Do not use granite as a cutting block. Granite will dull your knives.

Do not place hot items, such as pots and pans, on any stone. As a safety precaution, use coasters on countertops.

A quality impregnating sealer penetrates stone, allows the stone to breathe and permits more of the stone's natural beauty to shine through.

Unsealed stone is more susceptible to absorbing moisture, dirt and cleaning chemicals. We apply a high quality penetrating sealer at the time of installation.
